Burn The Gallows was formed when brothers David Cardenas and Andres Cardenas starting playing music together with Andres originally playing drums. They soon found a bass player, Dee Jarvis but were lacking a singer. After finding out the talent that Andres had as a singer, David and Dee convinced Andres to move his talents to the front man position. They soon found Lars Kocherhans to play rhythm guitar and Aaron Cordes to play drums and the line up was complete. For the past year BTG has spent almost every weekend, (and sometimes full weeks) traveling and playing high energy shows all while spending weeknights writing and recording the new full length album "Promises, Promises" with producer "Bucket" Stetson Whitworth (Chelsea Grin, Hearts and Hands, The Used).
" To be honest, hearing their CD without knowing who they are, could make one wonder if they’re listening to the new secret album of known bands such as Three Days Grace or Breaking Benjamin. Undeniably one of Salt Lake City’s finest bands. Need a new rock band to listen to? Then this would definitely be one to consider. Snag a CD and try to listen only once. "

"The first time I heard this song , I wasn't sure what to expect while the intro played and the first chords rang out. Then the vocals came in with a solid guitar riff backing it I instantly changed direction of thoughts , I was actually impressed great vocals and writing on this bands part. I actually listened to it twice back to back , very memorable song - NOW they have a video go like this band"
